If you'd like to discuss whether or not the video is relevant (it is) or  helpful (three people felt it was before it was whacked), why don't you just do so?

But instead you claim someone should summarize it in text form?  Really?

a) please do show us where it says THAT in the rules.

Please refer to the Youtube Posting Guidelines: http://community.callofduty.com/message/413354283#413354283

Video content is only allowed to support written content. This was a post that required the user to view the video in order to comment. A summary of the video would have sufficed to make it a discussion post appropriate for this forum.

This has been in effect for several months.

"A quick note for everyone: At the end of the day we're a discussion forum. If you're going to bring ideas, topics and news to our forum, then you should do this in a way that your thread is supported by visual content as opposed to being centered around the visual content itself."

A rule that's not listed in the rules.  classic.

How about you go about things in a respectable manner and add it to the rules post before hamfistedly enforcing it?

Second, he DID summarize the video in one sentence. he said (paraphrasing) "this video shows a class setup to help deal with lag comp".

So again, show us the rule against his post... either posted or supposed to know because you... well I can't even guess HOW you're supposed to know about that post on a thread that long since scrolled.

And finally, I like how rather than edit out the word you didn't like, you edited out the whole thought you didn't like.

I'll say it again:  Don't be a dingletwinkie just because you can.  It's behavior unbecoming in a moderator.

Let's see if you're secure enough to leave it this time.

Just so we're all aware, this is how you get banned. It's ok to bring up an issue with valid points, but it's definitely not ok to lace it with an insult or provide abrasive delivery.

Concerning his points.

Rules not listed in the rules.

There is some merit to this argument and the explanation in my opinion is sound. While each Call of Duty forum sports the usage of the basic Code of Conduct and Terms of Use, different developers have different tastes and approaches to content. Thus we have amended the Code of Conduct with additional guidelines as opposed to changing the base rules for a single forum.

He did summarize the video.

Yes he did, but by our standards it's not a proper discussion. I understand that is considered a stretch of things, but at the end of the day discussions are normally more than a single sentence. When you look at the video, you realize that a lot more discussion could be pulled from it and explained via text. This cycles back to the concept that a video should be supportive of discussion, not the whole discussion element.

I'd like to close this out by stating that we're ultimately trying to work with the community here. We could very well pull the advertisement card out on videos as they are normally monetized by some third party, but we understand that they have a place within the community. Help us help you keep the ability to use videos on our board by respecting our simple wishes. If not we can and will pursue rules of engagement regarding YouTube that ultimately removes them from the boards entirely.

Locking. This thread has gone on long enough. If you wish to discuss YouTube videos on our boards please PM me directly. NYCJPM, no we will not discuss or revoke your ban.

For reference, I have never even ONCE in my LIFE seen a video that cannot be summarized into 1 sentence per minute of video playtime.

Not.

Once.

But I have seen hourlong videos that could have been summarized into three sentences, wasting hours on what I could have read as fast as my entire post.

Not a bad vid. PDW is an excellent weapon however lag comp is for people who have worse connections. It gives them the advantage. They see you  first because it takes their packets longer to get to the server. This is how it works but the game isn't perfect.
